Interaction with Guests
We're two guys who have been happily partnered for 10 years, and we live here with our very friendly dog, MayDay. She is a beautiful black labrador who is always very welcoming to guests who stay with us. Some guests even request to take her for walks to the park or beach, which is usually fine with us.
Our home is family- and gay-friendly and if you have any special or particular requirements, let us know and we'll try to accommodate them.
The beautiful Bull Island Beach and bird sanctuary is accessed via a bridge at the end of our quiet street. The beach is great for walking and swimming.
The huge St. Annes Park and beautiful rose gardens within are a 10 minute walk from the house.
There are some nice local restaurants within 5 minutes from our home. These include "Kinara" Indian restaurant, "Kanoodle" Thai Take away, and "Bay" Restaurant which is at the end of our road.
There is a small village with convenience shops only 2 minutes walk away.
Bus no. 130 will take 15 mins to bring you to the City centre leaves from the end of our road (2 minute walk from our house). Frequency of bus is every 10/15 mins.
We are 20 minutes in a taxi (roughly €20) from the airport.
We can sell you "Leap Cards" (prepaid bus/rail tickets). We sell at the same price the shop sells them, and we dont take a profit.
The house itself is non-smoking, but we've a nice patio you can sit out on to do so.
Clean as you go in the kitchen (dishwasher available).
Great hosts, beautiful house, and the bus line was easy to use. Recommended.
Had a wonderful stay in Mick and Shays Home. They are great hosts and their house is absolutely beautiful. Everything is newly remodeled in a modern style, the room is very large with a big comfy bed. The main bathroom was one of the nicest I have seen, you can tell they put a lot of work and love into this home. Good wireless internet, free parking on the street and you can walk to the ocean in 5 minutes. All around perfect experience. Highly recommended!
This is our first experience with Airbnb. We are very happy with our decision for staying in Mick&Shay house. They are fantastic host. Shay gives us great recommendations for visiting around. The house is clean, comfortable and quiet, where is very easy to reach the downtown (bus No130 is just around corner). At last, I have to say Mayday is such a wonderful companion, behaved, lovely and friendly. If you are looking for place to stay in Dublin, no hesitation, this is the place!
Mick & Shay's house is absolutely beautiful - the front door sets the standard with the rest of house modern and tastefully decorated. Our guest room was equally lovely and spacious with everything we needed for our stay. Mayday, their dog, is extremely well behaved. We didn't get the chance to meet Mick or Shay because we had to delay our stay by one night but they left us a welcome note and we could get in contact with them at any stage. We would highly recommend staying here, it's in a lovely neighbourhood in Dublin.
Mick & Shay were beyond excellent host. They opened there home to us and so much more. Always willing to answer questions, give advice and there opinion on where we should eat, visit and explore. There house was amazing; my boyfriend and I felt completely at home. MayDay was such a wonderful perk to have around. We loved taking her for walks around the park.
The bus stop was right around the corner from there place and such a convenient 10 minute ride into Dublin. I would recommend them to anyone who is traveling to Dublin and looking for a wonderful place to stay with wonderful host! We definitely can't wait to come back for another visit and stay with you both again!!!

About the Host, Mick & Shay
We're 2 guys who have been happily partnered for 10 years, living in our home with our friendly labrador retriever, MayDay.
We're both pretty laid back and our house is quiet enough for you to relax and enjoy use of the large living area which opens out to the patio/garden.
